Outreach and Events

The Office of Sustainability holds several events and contests throughout the academic year to educate students, faculty and staff about sustainability initiatives on campus, how to live more sustainably and encourage them to participate in the sustainability movement on campus. The University of Houston has participated in RecycleMania, the nationwide university recycling competition, since 2009. The Office of Sustainability hosts Sustainability Fest in November and the UH Earth Day Festival on April 22. In addition to regular annual events, the office holds educational tablings and exhibits on campus and in the Greater Houston region and presents about campus sustainability at student and new hire orientations.
